The proper name of this plant is Cannabis Sativa. (Sativa is the species; Cannabis is the sub-species). The confusion arises because Cannabis Sativa has been hybridized into two varieties that differ from each other to the extent they contain different levels of a psychoactive substance called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Specimens with under 0.3% THC are called hemp. Those with 0.3% or more are called cannabis or, more commonly, Marijuana. Although they have different names and different levels of THC, they are the same plant.
Because cannabis is another word for Marijuana, it was difficult for me to believe that anything with the name cannabis attached to it could be medicinal in terms of producing lasting health benefits. Feeling good or relieving pain? Maybe. But long-term health? Not likely.
It wasn’t until about 2012 that I became aware that some companies were removing THC from the hemp variety of Cannabis Sativa, but I wasn’t sure why. Surely, there must be something left behind that was worth the effort, but I had no idea what it was. All I knew was that there were testimonials about overcoming seizures, cancer, depression, autism, insomnia, even stuttering. Still, I was at a loss for an explanation of why these things were happening.
Only recently did I become aware there are other components of Cannabis Sativa that have definite medicinal properties but, unlike THC, they are not psychoactive. They are called CBD (Cannabidiol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and a group of essential oils called Cannabis Terpenes. CBD appears to produce medicinal effects whereas CBG and the Terpenes are synergistic agents to enhance the medicinal effects and mitigate side effects.
Why am I boring you with all this? Well, for starters, I am fascinated by the science behind it but primarily because I recently have learned of a CBD product called RECEPT that is based on that science – and the company has asked me to let you know what I think about it. That’s why I took the research plunge to become clear on terms like THC, CBD, CBG, and Cannabis Terpenes.
Having done so, I can tell you I have a very good feeling about this product and the company. At present, I am not aware of any other source of CBG nor any other company that avoids using ethanol to process the plants. Why? Because, ethanol leaves a toxic residue and also removes the valuable Turpenes. Excellent reasons, indeed.
be assured that RECEPT has zero-level THC.
